lyrics

We are golden shining.
Two lost souls colliding.

As the night became tomorrow,
From the Buda Hills I followed
Across the Liberty.

As you walked away,
Gold dust fell from your hair,
Shining on my fingers,
A footprint on my soul.

Can't escape
The resting state of anguish,
That I couldn't find the language,
Couldn't sing the melody.

Speak to me and your heart is working.
Take your time and the wheel is turning.

As I whispered in your ear,
I knew my words would disappear,
Deported by the Morning Sun,
The stories that we told are gone.

Mysteries within your eyes,
I want to sail my ship inside.
You'll count down while I try to hide.
Won't fight your Ocular Riptide.

I listen
To the cascade washing over me,
I could write a symphony:
"Esprit de l'escalier"

Maybe I invented you in my head.
Beautiful illusions I won't forget.

Every single word I said,
You looked at me with bated breath.
It was a time for bravery,
The moment washed into the sea.

Mysteries within your eyes,
I want to sail my ship inside.
You'll count down while I try to hide.
Won't fight your Ocular Riptide.

Won't fight your Ocular Riptide.
How many sailors lost their lives
Inside your Ocular Riptide?

Won't fight your Ocular Riptide.
I didn't need the morning light;
I got an Ocular Sunrise.
